OSSOWSKI: Federal judge returns sanity to Florida elections

By Yaël Ossowski | Florida Watchdog

TAMPA— Honoring years of legal precedence, a federal judge has ruled that maintaining fair and legitimate voter registration rolls is probably a good idea, especially in the vote-challenged state of Florida.

Previous examinations by the state yielded a list of over 200,000 suspected ineligible voters still on the registration lists across the Sunshine State — non-citizens and deceased citizens alike.

Bucking the demands of the Department of Justice, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle, of the Northern District Court in Tallahasse, ruled on Wednesday that the state of Florida is well within its right to remove ineligible and deceased voters from its voter rolls.

“People need to know we are running an honest election,” said Hinkle in the 27-page ruling handed down on Wednesday.

Attorney General Eric Holder, who has himself been the victim of voter fraud, initially criticized the election-legitimizing efforts of the state of Florida for concerns about a “systematic voter purge” that violated the National Voter Registration Act.

But, alas, what does this positive ruling mean for the nearly 11 million registered voters in the Sunshine State?

It means that the state can continue with making every one of those 11 million votes count. It means that the perilous fate of rigged elections that doom third-world nations and help sustain autocratic dictatorships won’t see the light of day in our great state.

It means that the Great-Grandmother Jones won’t achieve that coveted milestone of voting in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, decades after her passing.
